Purpose of Academic Advising

Faculty, administrators, and professional staff on this campus consider advising both a responsibility and an opportunity for enriching and enhancing each student’s pattern of learning and personal development. Central to the mission of academic advising at the university is teaching students to understand the purpose of the curriculum and fostering their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career plans.

How to Schedule an Advising Appointment?

Upon successful completion of EF 151/152 or Honors 157/158 and Math 141/142 or Honors 147/148 and you have been granted acceptance into the program, you will be advised by CBE Senior Advisor Kerri Cline. Currently all advising appointments are being conducted through Zoom. Appointments must be scheduled through Vol Academic Connect (Navigate), available via MyUTK.

Advising Policy at UT

Prior to advanced registration, all undergraduate students who have earned fewer than 30 hours at UT or are on Academic Review are required to meet with an advisor during each main term of the academic year (Fall and Spring). All other students are required to consult with an advisor for a substantial conference during a designated term each year. Students whose ID ends with an even number (including zero) are advised in Fall for Spring registration and students whose ID ends with an odd number are advised in Spring for Fall Registration. The Tickle College of Engineering strongly encourages all students to meet with their academic advisor every term before registering.
